You have exactly ten days to get your Valentine’s Day plans together. That’s if you do anything. Do you? Special dinner, dinner out? The GCC tradition has always been a quiet night at home. Dinner is home cooked and usually consists of shrimp or steak. We have a homemade dessert and we pick out a favorite film to watch together. GIFTS, no gifts? A small gift for Boo that is most likely a dvd he doesn’t already own and some sweets or socks or something along that line. He usually gets me white roses (my fave) or something equally great. Our plans and gifts aren’t extravagant, cause that’s not our deal. We’re simplistic peeps. That is until you get to dessert! Let’s get back to that! What to make for chocolate Valentine’s Day dessert, is always the first thing I think of. My Boo l♥ves chocolate and he l♥ves dessert!
See, we’re simplistic people! Notice the paper plate? LOL. Guys, I’m living in a rental and 95% of my life is in storage—don’t judge! Focus (as my grandson says)!
What speaks better than chocolate and strawberries to say I L❤️VE YOU?
I went through my collection of old recipes and this is a tried and true & favorite. This cake batter recipe is the best batter for chocolate anything! Cupcakes, cakes, tortes, etc. The texture, consistency, and flavor is OMG.
Honestly, I think the combination ingredients (sour cream/baking soda/hot water), makes it super moist. What could possibly make it any better?
This flippin’ frosting that I couldn’t stop eating!!! LORDY this is the best dang frosting I’ve EVER made. Have y’all ever had the fresh strawberry slush at Sonic? Well. That’s. all. I’m saying on that. (drool)
Just make this for your honey or have them make it for YOU! Can’t go wrong either way.

The batter makes 3 hefty (9″) round cakes or I made these mini chocolate cakes and some cupcakes for the littles and to share with the neighbors!
Whatever you make, I guarantee it will be devoured. Love to you & HAPPY Valentine’s Day!
